She is preceded in death by her parents; son, Vance Luis Hernández; brother, Wenceslado “Bebe” Castillo, Jr. and sister; Maria Gloria (Eliodoro (+)) Cantu.

Olivia was a Guadalupana (a Catholic women's organization) and member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Edinburg since her childhood. She enjoyed simple pleasures: gardening, sewing, crocheting, watching telenovelas, cooking, and making tamales. She was a wonderful daughter, loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She will be greatly missed, but her legacy will continue through the lives of her family. Her sidekick and cherished pet Chihuahua, Lilly, will miss her too. Her favorite expression was, "Gracias a Dios". Her family will receive friends today, Wednesday, November 9, 2016 from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. with a Rosary to be prayed at 6:00 p.m. in the Chapel of Peace at Ceballos-Diaz Funeral Home in Edinburg.
